United Kingdom, Speyside
A rich aroma of sherry, fruit and nutty chocolate with delicate spice. Tasting notes include juicy raspberries, pineapple and toasted malt. There's a subtle smoky background due to the very light peating of the malt that Benromach uses, reviving a style of Speyside whisky that was popular in the 1960s.
Like so many distilleries in the Speyside area, Benromach was built during a whisky boom in the 1890s that occurred in the area following the arrival of the railways and began producing spirit in 1900. However it closed in the same year to do a shortage of money. Reopening in 1911 under new ownership, it continued to distill up until the outbreak of the first world war and resumed when the war ended following a further change of ownership. It changed hands a few times over the following half a century until final closure in 1983. Fortunately it was aquired by Gordon & MacPhail a decade later, who restored and modernised the distillery, modifying the design to allow it to be operated by just a single person. It was reopened in 1998 by Charles, Prince of Wales (he has his own barrel that he's signed in the warehouse, which is open to public viewing) and bottling began in 2004.
